Wake up with Coffee and Scripture
There is no better way to begin your Sunday morning than digging into God’s word with a hot cup of coffee or tea. In this study group feel free to bring your Bible and bring your questions for an open time of reading and sharing. We study different books of the Bible and themes throughout the year but are always open to studying what interests you! Join us at 8 a.m. every Sunday morning in the conference room next to the back office and library.
